Grant Gustin who plays Barry Allen on The Flash did his San Diego Comic Con rounds this past weekend and ComicBook.com was courteous enough to translate some of the questions concerning his role in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Possible New Powers, Multiverse and more.
You mentioned the Multiverse. Does that mean we might see Rick Cosnett (Eddie Thawne) return?Yeah, I think so. They said that when Rick was leaving the show for personal reasons, that they had ways to brig him back. We have a multiverse, so anyone who’s died could potentially come back to the show.
It was announced that Jay Garrick would join the Flash in Season Two. When will Barry first interact with Jay, and what will their interaction be like?
I can’t say much about that right now. But, when our producer and writers show an easter egg, like with Jay’s helmet appearing in the season finale, they don’t do that for no reason. When they tease something like that, it’s coming to the show. I would expect to see Jay Garrick sooner rather than later.
Is there a part of the DC Universe that you’d really like the next season to explore? Any new characters?
I always say that I think it’d be cool—and this isn’t me hinting or anything—for the show to bring Mirror Master onboard. It’s like a whole other world to enter, that isn’t the multiverse or another world. I just think visually, he could be really cool. That’s a cool sci-fi element for the audience, especially the people who don’t really know the Flash. I think he’d be a really cool new villain to bring on the show. He’s one of the more popular rogues.
How will we see Barry learn and grow as a hero through season two?Barry will have a new mentor in season two. And they’re already working together by episode two. In the second episode, Barry learns to do something new with his powers. We’ve never done it before, and it’s pretty different from what we’ve tried on the show. It involves lightning, and it’ll be pretty cool.
